GOP State Sen. Defends His Alleged Domestic Abuse: ‘Girls’ Get ‘A Little Upset’ | On July 11, Melissa Jordan called 911 saying her husband — state Sen. Kris Jordan (R-OH) — was pushing her around and throwing things. Sen. Jordan was quick to trivialize his wife’s complaint and throw the blame on her, explaining “She got a little upset. Girls do that.” The 34-year-old senator went on to say the incident was “90 percent emotion.” “I threw some things on the ground, but I didn’t hit her or anything,” he said. “So she’s all worked up about who knows.” Ms. Jordan told police that night that she has suffered from her husband’s violent episodes for two years, sometimes after he had been drinking. She also told deputies there were 10 to 15 unloaded guns in the house. Ohio prosecutors since decided not to press charges after Ms. Jordan asked them to drop the investigation.
